Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 13-19, 2012

Leo (July 23-August 22): The world feels small this week, but in a cozy kind of way. So, don’t be scared to reach out, visit old haunts, and rekindle old fires. After all, why pass up a good moment when it presents itself? Don’t worry about there being strings attached – so long as you don’t insist on them, they won’t either.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Hope is all you need for a better day. Know your power of belief is gold, especially to someone near and dear to you. It seems you underestimate yourself and your power to affect others. Know your opinions matter heavily now, even if no one asks. Go ahead — put your views out there when you can, because inquiring minds are listening.

Libra (September 23-October 22): Inappropriate affections may start to grow between you and someone off limits. While you might understand the need to cool your lust, that other will likely not have gotten the memo, and an uncomfortable situation is going to begin. Plus, to add to this chaos, it seems that if you do make a fuss, no one will back you up the way you deserve. Yes, a quagmire indeed.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Disappointment is something you know about and do all in your power to divert for anyone you care about. The problem is people misunderstand your shyness as sadism, which is far from the case. No matter, because if they can’t get you, then what kind of foundation is that for any sort of future? The right person will get you, right down to the last maniacal and miraculous part.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): You know the truth and if you want it do anything for you, then abide by what is right in your heart and do what you must. As the sign of honesty, it’s time to rise to the occasion and really look in that mirror at yourself. Chances are you will love what you see, but know those few blemishes that you can’t ignore need tending too — so just bite that bullet and clean up your mess.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Your tastes are going to be running all over the map, so get ready for a freaky week of odd conquests and bizarre plot lines. The good news is that this Alice In Wonderland week will give you lots of fodder for new creative interests that can finally turn your life around in a more purposeful way. The bad news is that you won’t know which potion to drink for the good results.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19): Conventional relationships are not your thing and anyone who wants to take the road most traveled should just keep going ahead without you. Time to recognize the differences that make your relationship fresh and the ones that keeps you down. No, love isn’t easy, but it’s a lot harder when you try to ignore the obvious obstacles.

Pisces (February 20-March 20): Pull rank this week on your baby, as your expertise will shine a lot brighter than theirs. Plus, you don’t want to waste time watching them try to fix matters at hand. After all, they might make the situation worse. Besides, why not show off what you’re capable of? You’re a catch in so many ways; don’t be shy in showing off why.

Aries (March 21-April 19): Fate is going to take a dramatic turn for the more exciting, as twists and turns in romance get dramatic in that telenovela way. So, glam it up and work it out, as this is your moment to be in the spotlight and be romanced. That’s right; let passion have no boundaries, as there is no such thing as too much.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): You’ll be over your routine, feeling totally unmotivated. Yes, a cranky week of feeling like disappointment is going to plague you forever will hit. You might not be able to fight this feeling, so don’t bother trying. This week, you’ll get way more out of wallowing in your self-pity and indulging in your vices.  Yes, spoil yourself rotten until you feel better — or until next week.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Words you want to hear will be coming at you fast, but don’t assume you know all the details yet. Surprises are in store, but remain patient and let the plot unfold at its own pace. If you try to guess what happens next, it might change fate, so sit still and enjoy the show.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Hiding out isn’t going to win you any favors, so get your butt into gear and make good on your word. If you want to see major changes in your life, you can’t wait for fate to do all the work. Now is when you’re going to have to be courageous and make that someone aware of what you want, as it’s now or never to bring destiny into arms’ reach.
